3D2N in Resorts World Sentosa: A curated itinerary for an adventure-filled trip

A million moments


By Natalie Khoo

Did you know that the one-hour flight between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore is the world’s busiest route in 2023? According to OAG, a data platform for the global travel industry, there were roughly 4.9 million seats on the leg, equivalent to a 50 per cent increase from the year before. 

With the high frequency of trips to our neighbouring country—be it for work or leisure—you may be among those planning a visit this year. If you’re looking to explore a diverse range of attractions but only have a few days to spare in Singapore, Resorts World Sentosa is the place to be. 

Named the ‘Best Integrated Resort’ since 2011 for ten consecutive years at the TTG Travel Awards, the premium lifestyle destination resort is home to world-class attractions spanning theme parks, luxury hotels and award-winning dining experiences—all located within its 49-hectare land on the island of Sentosa. The best part is that everything is within walking distance from each other so you can minimise travel time and dive straight into fun! 

To make your visit to Resorts World Sentosa even more convenient, we’ve curated this itinerary for you to make the most of your time there. Plus, we’ve included first-hand tips and highlights from our recent stay at the destination resort. You’re welcome. 





Opened since July 2023, Hotel Ora is Resorts World Sentosa’s latest hotel targeted at b-leisure travellers and digital nomads. Complete with spacious and well-appointed rooms that can accommodate couples or families, in addition to social spaces and modern facilities, the hotel has all the comforts you need for a pleasant stay. There are also co-working amenities should you need to connect, collaborate and create on the go. With its strategic location near the heart of Resorts World Sentosa, adventure awaits just steps away!



After you’ve checked in and settled into your hotel room, get ready to be mesmerised by over 100,000 marine animals at S.E.A. Aquarium. Touted as one of the world’s largest aquariums, you’ll discover 1,000 unique species across more than 40 diverse habitats here. Expect intimate animal encounters, interactive programmes, and immersive experiences that will inspire a newfound appreciation for the world’s aquatic life. Don’t forget to bring your camera as there are many photo-worthy spots that you’ll want to snap for keepsakes. 

BURO Tip: If you particularly love animals and learning about them, we suggest allocating at least three hours or more to enjoy the full experience. Better yet, opt for the VIP Experience for a guided tour to learn exclusive insights and behind-the-scenes workings of the aquarium!

Just remember to come back for them after!

Among the popular dishes to order include Yellowfin Tuna Tamarind Ceviche and Wok Fried Seafood XO Aeropuerto.
